A press release from the U.S. Marshals states that on April 6, 2023, Braman was arrested in Phoenix, Arizona.

The U.S. Marshals Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force-Madison adopted the warrant on March 31, 2023, and subsequently, new information was developed indicating that Braman was possibly in Phoenix, AZ at his sister’s residence.

Surveillance was established on the residence by the USMS Fugitive Task Force in Arizona, and on April 6, 2023, when Braman and his sister were observed returning to the residence, Braman was taken into custody without incident.

Braman is charged with Class B Felony 1st Degree Reckless Homicide, and Class D Felony ​​Neglecting a Child (Consequence is Death). The charges were filed regarding the death of a 7-month-old infant who died from blunt head trauma, according to the U.S. Marshal’s press release.

Online circuit court records show that Braman and another individual, Jamie L. Williams, were previously charged with Class D Felony Neglecting a Child (Consequence is Death) in March 2019.

The cases were scheduled for a jury trial in February 2023, however, at a motion hearing on February 16, 2023, both cases were dismissed upon the motion of Polk County District Attorney Kemp.

At the time of this post, no new charges are located in online court records for Williams.
